Malvern Theatres Exhibition - July

by Claire Mitchell 3. July 2012 21:27
This exhibiton runs until 5th August and features four artists, two of whom are new to the theatre. ;

David Shiers was born in Liverpool in 1945, and enjoyed painting from an
early age.

Working in various studios and exhibiting widely around the Merseyside area, David, a self-taught artist, turned professional in 2003. The only tuition he received was from attending Liverpool College of Art life drawing classes, on an evening basis over a period of four years.

He paints in watercolours and oils. Since going full time, he spends a lot of time painting on location in The Wirral, Southern France and Spain.

His working process is based on a series of Plein Air watercolour sketches and digital photographs, then finally working up to the finished painting; much inspired by works of the past impressionists, Pissaro, Monet, Cezanne and Sisley.

Working as full time artist now gives him time to diversify and experiment with light and nature. His studio is based on the Wirral, he has just recently been accepted as a member of the "Wirral Society of Arts", which is based in the Williamson Art Gallery on the Wirral, he has also been accepted as one of Windsor & Newtons featured artists. This is his second show at the theatre.

 

Having studied art in a variety of forms for over 10 years, at a relatively young age, Victoria Stothard has already created and sold over 2000 original pieces of art. Eternally obsessed with art in every form she works prolifically, striving to improve every facet of her work.

She constantly experiments with style and materials, but only exhibits and sells the works she feels best represents the highest quality.

Influences upon her work vary greatly; from the symbolic botanical studies by artist Georgia O'Keefe to the starkly contrasting colour manipulation of Mark Rothko, the sculptural passion of Vivienne Westwood's couture and thought provoking, emotive and energetic works of Damien Hirst and Jackson Pollock.
These influences are most apparent in her understanding of the conscious and subconscious workings of the human mind; compositions subtly influence the viewer, through their form and the use of sumptuous colours and layered textures.

Victoria strongly believes that the beauty of the World as discovered through her creative and energetic art should be accessible to everyone and so despite their popularity her works are sensibly priced.

Shirley Allford studied art at Warwickshire College and has since enjoyed exploring and finding her own unique style. Her love of the countryside and her interest in the cyclic nature of emotions has deeply influenced her work.

Her paintings; often placing birds or other wild-life in evocative landscapes, have a dream like quality, which like many dreams has the potential to turn into something more threatening. The emotion with which she approaches her work, shines through.

She has exhibited across the Midlands in the last couple of years and her work is owned by collectors across the UK. She deliberately prices her work to be affordable to all.

During the last few years Humph Hack has visited many European cities gathering material for a series of exhibitions entitled "The Grand Tour". He had planned to be an architect but changed direction, training to be a fine artist.

His work exploits the colour and textures which can be seen in buildings, enhancing this richness in the way he applies paint to the canvas. As his travels continue, the breadth of his work will continue to expand. Whether or not the viewer knows or has visited the buildings depicted, his paintings excite by the freshness and uniqueness of his approach.

Humph’s work is owned by collectors across the UK and Europe. He has shown at the theatre twice before.
